A six-pointer clash coming up as Roma go head-to-head against Bologna in the race for a top-four finish.

Roma confirmed their berth in the Europa League semi-finals with a 3-1 aggregate victory over league counterparts Milan in their previous outing. Gianluca Mancini has been the unlikely hero for the Giallorossi in recent matches as the defender scored in the Derby della Capitale, and twice over the two legs against the Rossoneri. Daniele De Rossi will be without the services of Evan N’Dicka and Romelu Lukaku tomorrow as the former needs some recovery time after collapsing on the pitch versus Udinese while the Belgian averted a knee injury but sustained a muscular knock against Milan. Roma are three points clear of 6th-placed Lazio and with a little foresight, they can qualify for the Champions League next season.

Meanwhile, Bologna have experienced a dip in form recently as they were held to two goalless draws in a row. Manager Thiago Motta is confident of avoiding any slip-ups at the business end of the campaign and finishing in a Champions League spot. The Rossoblu have conceded the second-least goals in the league this season after league leaders Inter and they will look to put their defence into good use to deal with the pressure at the Stadio Olimpico. Bologna will enter the battle for third place in the Serie A table if they manage to get the win against Roma.

Roma (4-3-3): Svilar; Karsdorp, Mancini, Llorente, Angelino; Cristante, Paredes, Pellegrini; Dybala, Abraham, El Shaarawy.

Bologna (4-2-3-1): Skorupski, Posch, Beukema, Calafiori, Kristiansen; Freuler, Aebischer; Orsolini, Urbański, Saelemaekers; Zirkzee.
